High winds and a high lake level made for a very wet Sunday for residents along Lake Erie, there was flooding reported through Turkey Point, Long Point, and Port Dover. In fact the flooding was serious enough that roads needed to be closed and drivers reminded not to pass the signs indicating as much. This is what prompted OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk to take to twitter to show just how bad the situation was while delivering his warning.

Though even the flooding was insufficient to dampen Port Dover’s self-promotion as the Norfolk County Tourism twitter decided to advertise their restaurants with an image from a webcam situated on the lighthouse.

Views from the lighthouse webcam this morning indicate the waters have receded somewhat; though it is a little dark at the hour of posting to make a proper determination of how far.
It is good to see that even high waters can’t dampen the spirit.
